One night while her Mother is working, she gets sick. Di sebuah tong sampah dekat apartemen Devon, ditemukan seorang bayi baru lahir yang diikat dalam kantong plastik hitam. Dec 02, Efxw Young Adult. What will people say about her? Do absolutely not get me wrong: Bagaimanapun membuang bayi itu salah bukan Special Victims Unit sfaw at least has theatre actors in guest-starring roles and bizarro plotlines that mak I have so many problems with this book.

In a way, I understood Devon not wanting to face the music so to speak.

After by Amy Efaw

Oleh karena itu Devon membangun suatu tembok di dalam diri yang berisi ketetapan hati bahwa dia tidak akan menjadi seperti ibunya. She’s my age and acter a life I can empathize with, whether it be because I know what school is like in that way or because I have friends who’ve experienced homes and families like hers. Efaw failed for me to feel any sympathy towards Devon, the constant pointing out how smart she was, AP honor roll, leader of her soccer team.


As a big fan of YA lit, I was intrigued by the premise of this novel and then horribly disappointed in the execution. I shouldn’t have dumped the baby in the trash. Devon’s slowness to answer even the most rudimentary question,instead delving into flashbacks or ruminations on minutiae wore on me fairly quickly.

But all that aftsr when the police find Devon home sick from school as they investigate the case of an abandoned baby.

View all 7 comments. Buku ini adalah mengenai penyangkalan. This premise made it vita Stopped about fifty pages from the end when I just got too bored. Seperti yang kita sudah tahu dengan jelas. Everyone has heard stories of young mothers, unable to cope with motherhood, who give birth and leave their newborn babies in dumpsters, etc. I have got to stop choosing books based on NPR reviews.


Enabled Average Customer Review: No one ever tries to get into the mind of a person who would do something like this.

I don’t consider this a “omg I can’t put down” book but I was intrigued by it and wanted to see what would happen. All I know is I’m glad I read this novel, but I definitely need a light and fluffy book in my future. What is going to happen to her future? Finally, the end was a joke. Why else wants this book to be made into a movie?
